Texas RLC Endorses Ken Paxton for Speaker of the House
Today the Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas has endorsed Rep. Ken Paxton (pictured) for Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, citing his fiscally conservative record and commitment to principle.
According to Texas resident Dave Nalle, Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, Paxton is rated 100% by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility and widely respected for his integrity and vision. He is not just a fiscal conservative, but also has a strong record on civil liberties, supports school vouchers, affirms the Second Amendment, and opposes the criminalization of non-violent civil disobedience. On many of these issues he has stood on principle against the majority despite criticism and controversy.
The Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas is proud to offer its support to Representative Paxton in his campaign for the Speaker’s seat and we hope other Texans who believe in fiscally conservative government and individual liberty will join us in demanding that House Republicans make sure that if Speaker Joe Straus is replaced, the result will be to move towards better government. “Ken Paxton is the real deal,” said Texas RLC Chairman Joey Dauben of Ellis County.

Texas RLC Hosts Events with Governor Johnson in Austin, Houston, and Dallas
Governor Gary Johnson made a swing through Texas this week and had multiple events set up by grassroots activists throughout the state, including three Republican Liberty Caucus-sponsored events in Austin, Houston, and Dallas.
Last night Governor Johnson ended his tour in Palmer, Texas, a small town outside of Dallas. It ain’t every day that a prospective 2012 Presidential candidate visits the tiny hamlet. Joey Dauben, Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas, was the event organizer. He’s pictured above with the Governor.
On Tuesday evening Governor Johnson was in Houston in at an event co-sponsored by Southeast Texas RLC and the Houston Liberty Campaign. Former RLC-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina, founder of the group We Texans, also headlined the event. Thanks to Corie Whalen (pictured with the Governor below), Texas RLC Board member and regional coordinator, for hosting the event! The RLC brought in several new members as a result of Corie’s efforts.
On Saturday afternoon, Governor Johnson was in Austin for a barbecue at Bartholomew Park sponsored by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Central Texas. RLC Chairman Dave Nalle captured the Governor’s remarks on video (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4).
